Left Behind…

One of the most impressive areas of leadership does not involve what is being accomplished. In fact, it does not involve what has been accomplished. Rather, it involves what is left behind.

Legacy is not what you are leaving to, but it involves what you are leaving behind.

Thinking of all the accomplishments of leadership, nothing is more important than our legacy.

Among all the ideas regarding legacy, perhaps the most significant is the need to live the legacy we want to leave.

There will not be a second chance when we are gone.

Drawing near to the end of life is too late.

We must begin living it now. We must be what we want others to be.
Faith, trust, integrity, credibility, understanding, patience, and hard work are but a few to include.

In spiritual leadership, the idea of our legacy needs to be a greater priority. Ultimately, it all comes down to recognizing the need to duplicate our leadership.

Remember, “to add growth, lead followers. To multiply, lead leaders.”

When it is all said and done, what will we leave behind?
